They are very cool deer. That was last day of the season, early November. I was slowly walking a gated off logging road, all uphill probably a mile or so in, and looked down the embankment and he was staring back at me about 50 yards away quartered to. That .308 shooting 165 grain Hornady SST put him down right there. I actually couldn't find an exit wound until I skinned him out. Bullet went in base of the neck and most have disintegrated inside him because his insides were mush and all I could find on his off-side was a broken rib.Blacktails are just so cool looking! Beautiful buck.
That was my sons camera, m80 I think or something like that. Deer were standing still on his bait. I had a couple too and didn't like them. Too slow of a trigger speed and shutter speed. Took around 6 seconds to shoot after triggered. Had a lot of butt shots of deer on trails and night shots of racks were so blurred if they moved their heads you couldn't make out the points. That was 10 years ago so I'm sure the cameras today are different.That second photo has me wanting to buy a moultrie. Beautiful photo. Do you get that quality of photo often?
you talking about Dawson Forest?That’s awesome! Last year was our first year in i think over 20 years to be able to legally kill a true 6. Been under QDM for quite a few years where your bucks had to have 4 point on one side. Last year they added in that they can also be legal with having a 15” outside spread. Maybe i’ll get me one some day!
I’m just saying there’s no such thing as a cull buck. 🤷🏻♂️ it’s either a shooter or not.If it's brown it's down right? Depends on your neck of woods and conservation restriction. I shoot my share of does, fill that freezer.
